Friendly Llamas

Hi, Lois here today with another card using one of the CottageCutz Llamas and Botanicals dies.  You might want to check them out while they're still 25% off.  I used the die with two llamas for my card.  Again, I used one of Splitcoaststampers old sketch challenge layouts as my starting point . . .

. . . rotating it for my card.

To begin, I cut all the elements of the Llamas die from white cardstock.

I then colored the pieces with my Copic markers and "built" my llamas.

Then I cut my cardstock as follows:

Turquoise cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
                                    3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
White cardstock - 4" x 4" and 3 1/2" x 4"
Dark patterned paper - 3 1/4" square
Light patterned paper - 3 3/8" x 2 3/8"

From the two small white pieces of cardstock, I cut the largest Double-stitched Square and the 2nd largest Double-stitched Rectangle.

I then constructed my card following the sketch.

After stamping the small sentiment at the top right-hand corner of the yellow panel, I placed foam pop-dots behind the two llamas and placed them on the card, adding a bit of shadowing beneath them with a gray marker.  My card was complete.

CottageCutz dies used on this card are:
